Today, 12th of December, at block 498 888, another hard fork of Bitcoin took place called Super Bitcoin. Its slogan is "Make Bitcoin Great Again".

Super Bitcoin is an attempt by Chinese developers to optimize bitcoin blockchain by increasing the size of blocks to 8 MB, as well as integrating the Lightning Network technology, evidence with zero disclosure and smart contracts. The developers claim that they act on behalf of the community and implement the ideas that are most popular in it.

Please remember: "This is just an experiment." We are merely implementing the proposals recommended by the bitcoin community. Only when we put talk into action can we make bitcoin great again.

The total volume of the Super Bitcoin issue will be 21 210 000 coins. This number includes 210 000 coins, which will be received during the pre-minning.

The 210,000 pre-mined tokens will be managed by the Super BTC Foundation and primarily used to encourage early developers, invest in the super BTC ecosystem and ensure the operation of the Super BTC Foundation.

Lightning Labs attracted $ 10 million investment during the A-series financing round, and also introduced a beta version of its payment service for outlets that work with bitcoin.

If bitcoin is going to reach its potential as a viable global currency, it’s going to need to scale beyond the base layer. Similar to how Visa relieves banks from handling all fiat currency traffic, Lightning relieves the base bitcoin chain from handing all transactions, thus bring more speed and fee efficiency to the network.

With the help of the raised funds, the company intends to hire more developers and commercial specialists, so that it will be able to convey the applied solutions to users. In 2018, Lightning Labs unveiled a beta version of its LND scaling solution and received $ 2.5 million investment from several investors, including Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Litecoin creator Charlie Lee.

Now a beta version of the new Lightning Loop service has been launched, with the help of which outlets can more effectively manage payment channels and maintain liquidity in them. Several customers have already become interested in this tool, including the developer of the Fold shopping application, which processed approximately 1,600 transactions through the Lightning Network during the holidays in 2019.

We’re growing fast and Lightning Labs’ loop service makes it simple to manage our lightning node’s liquidity, letting our team focus on building out great user experiences that bring lightning to the world.

According to Lightning Labs, this year the company will be developing tools for working with larger payment channels. We are talking about both individual channels, which individually can hold more than $ 1,500, and multidirectional ones, which break down payments into smaller parts.
